50 customized vehicles convince new customer UNNE Corporate, leading logistics company for special freight forwarding
Stuttgart / Mexico: In Mexico, packages are now increasingly on the move with the trusted Freightliner vehicles of Daimler Trucks. Two leading transport and logistics companies in Mexico have purchased a formidable package of 140 commercial vehicles of the medium-duty and heavy-duty types Freightliner Business Class M2 and Freightliner Cascadia. Daimler Trucks Mexico has won UNNE Corporate, the logistics company for special transport of construction materials and crude oil derivatives, as a new
customer for 50 individualized Freightliner Cascadia trucks. The express- and package delivery service Estafeta already has several years of cooperation with Daimler behind it. The combination of state-of-the-art exhaust and safety technology in every one of the 90 ordered Freightliner trucks convinced the customer once again.
Gerhard Gross, President & CEO of Daimler Trucks Mexico: “Thanks to the flexible configuration possibilities of our vehicles, we can offer our partners individually tailored solutions for their specific transport operations. Daimler Trucks Mexico represents quality, state-of-the-art vehicle technology and, not last, low total cost of ownership.”
Estafeta – Mexico´s leading express and package service provider
With the large order of 90 Freightliner trucks, Estafeta completes its existing fleet, which will be 80 percent operated with commercial vehicles of the Daimler Trucks brand. 70 trucks have already been handed over to Estafeta – the rest will follow by the end of the year.
“Our goal is to achieve high service quality for a broad spectrum of services. With the Freightliner truck we are sending a signal: We want to continuously improve our business and to have the latest safety and environment technologies on board with our trucks. Daimler Trucks Mexico is a guarantor of quality, design and innovation which enable us to process all our deliveries efficiently”, says Ingo Babrikowski, CEO of Estafeta.

For more than 10 years it also offers additional services, among others, supply chain management and air freight. Estafeta is also active internationally with import and export services in 230 countries.
